KiloWatts is a marriage of man and machine - a love story about cells and bits - an attempt at defining a hilariously absurd and imperfect reality through an electronic invention that promises to encode this vision eternally. The music is deep, the songs tell stories, and the sounds are intensely emotional. Nested within the musical structure is an element of quirky electronic experimentation - a roadmap of new and interesting ways of caressing and mangling waveforms. The result is a cinematic tale of knowledge, confusion, and pushing forward.
Did you ever wonder how high the valves should lift; what happens when you scale it up or down; how big the inlet passage should be; why small engines run so fast; how heavy it will be; how the flywheel effect changes with size; how to set your lathe for greater accuracy; or how to check tapers and angles? Rudy describes and illustrates his real world approach to problem solving on these and other subjects in the shop and at the drawing board. He includes an outline and drawings of examples used in the DVD presentation.
